On the ground, World Vision’s trusted local partner Wahana Visi Indonesia has been providing emergency relief to the people of Lombok since 31 July 2018. Since then, they have distributed 379 family kits and 360 children’s kits, as well as set up two child-friendly spaces for 740 children.

In total, World Vision hopes to raise USD1 million in funding, which will support Wahana Visi Indonesia in:

  1. Conducting sanitation and health promotion interventions (e.g. the provision of family and children’s kits)
  2. Providing psychosocial support and child protection activities
  3. Conducting Infant and Young Child Feeding activities and setting up Women, Adolescent and Young Child Spaces
